You should read the new “opportunity to learn” report and not just dismiss it as a rerun of ideas debated 15 years ago. If, as looks increasingly likely, there are fewer moderates in Congress after the midterm elections, these ideas will have more traction and resonance among national elected Democrats.
But, this agenda is organized and bankrolled by millions from foundations and the NEA and touted by the same folks who can’t stop yammering about Gates, Broad, and other foundations. I don’t really care, all NGOs need money to operate and I like a vigorous debate. But in terms of the rhetoric, what, exactly, is the difference here? I assume it’s deeper than viewpoint discrimination or good for me but not for thee?
